Lubbock native shot by VA campus officer By CARSON WILSON Staff Writer
Joshua Hathaway, a former Lubbock resident, was fatally shot by a campus officer Monday night at Liberty University in Lynchburg, Va. Hathaway was a student at Liberty University and was 19 years old. Liberty University released a statement Tuesday that confirmed Hathaway
attempted to attack a Liberty University Emergency Services officer in a lobby of an on-campus woman’s-only residence hall. Hathaway was shot and killed, and the officer was transported to a hospital for treatment, according to the statement. The university later released search warrants, which showed Hathaway attempted to attack the officer with a hammer before he was killed. The Lynchburg Police Department
is investigating the matter, and the university is cooperating, according to the statement. Liberty University President Jerry Falwell, Jr. issued a statement about the incident. “The Liberty University community is deeply saddened by this tragic event,” he said in the statement, “and is prayerfully supporting all those impacted.” Last year, Hathaway was salutatorian
in the first graduating class of Southcrest Christian School in Lubbock. He was a student at Southcrest since prekindergarten. “His mother is one of our teachers,” Regina Hendrix, a secretary for Southcrest, said. “Right now we’re trying to grieve with the family. He was an incredible kid.” SHOOTING continued on Page 5 ➤➤

Supreme Court refuses to block abortion law
Trends in Prevalence of Psychotherapeutics (non-medical use) 2012
WASHINGTON (AP) — A sharply divided Supreme Court on Tuesday allowed Texas to continue enforcing abortion restrictions that opponents say have led more than a third of the state’s clinics to stop providing abortions. The justices voted 5-4 to leave in effect a provision requiring doctors who perform abortions in clinics to have admitting privileges at a nearby hospital. The court’s conservative majority refused the plea of Planned Parenthood and several Texas abortion clinics to overturn a preliminary federal appeals court ruling that allowed the provision to take effect. The four liberal justices dissented. The case remains on appeal to the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans. That court is expected to hear arguments in January, and the law will remain in effect at least until then.

Lane: America cannot survive as welfare state
When surveyed in 2012, more than 5 percent of people ages 18 to 25 admitted they had abused prescription drugs within the past 30 days, according to the National Survey on Drug Use and Health. In the same survey, about 13 percent of people in the same age group admitted they abused prescription drugs during the past year, and about 28 percent admitted they have abused prescription drugs sometime during their lives. Prescription drug abuse, or nonmedical use of prescription drugs, is defined by the National Institute on Drug Abuse as the use of medication without a prescription, in ways other than what’s prescribed, or for the feelings or experience elicited. The three categories of prescription drugs commonly abused are opioids, prescribed to treat pain; central nervous system depressants, used to treat anxiety and sleep disorders; and stimulants, such as those used to treat attention deficit
hyperactivity disorder, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse. “There’s a lot of different factors,” Kristen Harper, a research associate at Tech’s Center for the Study of Addiction and Recovery, said. “There’s environmental factors, there’s biological, there’s genetic, there’s predisposition if somebody in a student’s family has a history of abuse, then of course, that student is going to be more likely to be susceptible to an addictive behavior, to an addictive personality.” With these factors, she said the college-campus environment could lend itself to this sort of addiction very easily for many reasons. Harper said she believes college campuses are abstinence-hostile environments, meaning it is common for students to begin college and also begin experimenting with drugs and alcohol. Social acceptance as well as a pressure to succeed in school could tempt a student to become involved with something they would have never thought about trying before. RX continued on Page 2 ➤➤

Not waking up to attend 8 a.m. classes or not attending Friday lectures may seem harmless at the time. However, apart from missing out on important material, students also are throwing away money. “I think showing the students the cost associated with missing class would open some eyes,” said Chris Cook, managing director of the Texas Tech Office of Communications and Marketing. At Tech, tuition for the average semester course load of 15 credit hours costs
$4,471.05, according to the Tech Student Business Services website. The average course at Tech costs about $895. A class meets, on average, three times per week for a period of 15 weeks, which is a total of 45 class sessions. The price for missing one class would cost $20 per student, which does not factor in other costs associated with the class, such as textbooks and other materials. According to campusbook.com, the average cost for a new textbook is about $100, while a used book is $60.

“There’s a lot of pressure, as well, on college campuses, so you have a lot of the ADD and ADHD medications that a lot of our students sort of use to be able to maintain an average GPA or a higher GPA,” Harper said. “They don’t know, they don’t realize that they can be incredibly addictive. (The students are) not knowing that their brain chemistry and the body can make them addicted to it if they try it too many times. Actually, just once, sometimes people can get addicted to it.” Taylor Downs, a freshman engineering major from Amarillo, said of all the problems with drugs and alcohol he sees on campus, he did not think Tech students generally had a problem with prescription drug abuse. Downs said he was more likely to see someone with alcoholrelated problems. He said he has heard of people in other colleges abusing prescription drugs, such as medicine for attention deficit disorder, to help them stay up late and study for tests, but he had not heard of anyone at Tech doing so or planning to do so. Downs said the services offered by the school could be helpful to anyone struggling with issues regarding addiction. The Student Counseling

Center encourages any students who may be dealing with a drinking or drug-related struggle to utilize one of the services Tech has made available. Tech provides all students, faculty and staff access to alcohol and drug counseling. For an initial screening, the Office of Student Conduct at Tech suggests students contact Student Health Services or the Student Counseling Center, and for treatment programs and services, it suggests CSAR. Harper said if students showed up at the center’s door wanting support services for a problem with addiction, she would refer them to counseling first to take an assessment. The Student Counseling Center, the Student Wellness Center and other offcampus resources can assess the student. “We actually don’t do any screenings here or assessments because our program is to support recovery,” Harper said. “So, if somebody comes to us and they’re concerned they have a problem, we will refer them to a treatment facility or a counselor to figure out if they need to enter in-patient treatment, or outpatient, or just to attend some meetings and one-on-one counseling. Once they get into recovery, then they’re welcome to come back here and receive community support services.” The CSAR aims to help students battling with any addiction, including prescription
drugs, through quality long-term recovery with different communities, development of resiliency, education about addiction and effective strategies for treatment, according to its website. “If somebody knows someone (struggling with prescription drugs),” Harper said, “then just realize that it’s a very isolating disease, addiction is, and so the sooner that the person can be supported with some help and resources, then the more likely they are of getting into recovery and getting better soon.” In addition to the health issues with which prescription drugs could danger a student, any student in violation of drug or alcohol policies on campus can be subject to university judicial procedures listed in the Code of Student Conduct. Students also may be subject to legal proceedings separately and concurrently in accordance with local, state and federal law, according to the Student Right-to-Know brochure. Although legal issues could be a concern, Harper said she thinks regaining health is a more important issue. “It is definitely a life-threatening process, and they should not be too concerned or scared of getting in trouble to seek help and support,” she said. “Then they can return to school or return to campus and be successful.”

Meat judging team wins national championship The Texas Tech Meat Judging Team won its third consecutive national title on Nov. 15 at the American Meat Science Association’s International Meat Judging Contest in Dakota City, Neb., according to a news release. This is the 11th national championship title the Tech Meat Judging team won in the school’s history, according to the release. Christy Woerner, a junior animal science major from Fredericksburg, said she let out a sigh of relief when it was announced that the team secured its third-straight national championship. A three-peat was achieved one other time in meat judging history from 1962-64 by Oklahoma State University, coach Loni Woolley said. “As a coach, it is a lot of pressure knowing that you have the opportunity to three-peat,” she said. The team won by 51 points, a large margin in meat judging, Woolley said. It beat Angelo State
University, which was second, and Kansas State University, which was third. “To be completely honest I expected it,” Woerner said. “We were a good team, we were the best team in that banquet room and we worked the hardest.” The team was unable to secure the 2010 national championship to complete a three-peat, Woolley said. It has won five of the last six national championships, something that has never been done in meat judging history. Steven Ebeling, a senior animal science major from Plainview who was on the 2012 national title team, said there’s a lot more than winning. “At the end of the day I think it’s bigger than all that, because basically what we strive for is honor and the pursuit of excellence, whichis what our college is about,” he said. Part of the reason the team is so successful is because of the in-
volvement from past members and everyone giving back, Ebeling said. Mandy-Jo Laurent, a graduate student who was on the 2011 national title team, said her team was in a group message trying to find out who won and anxiously waiting to hear the results of the contest. The team won lamb judging, pork judging, specifications and reasons divisions, according to the release. The team placed second in placings and beef grading. For the first time this season, the team won pork judging, Woolley said, which helped to secure its 11th national title. Ebeling said this national championship has set up a great opportunity for the team to win next year and be the only school to ever win four-straight national titles. Aside from the championships, he said many of the team members will leave with friendships and life lessons that are more valuable. ➤➤email@example.com
Report: Violence, inmates rule in Mexico’s prisons MEXICO CITY (AP) — Cases of violence and inmates controlling Mexican prisons are on the rise, symptoms of the corruption and lack of resources that plague the country’s corrections system, the National Human Rights Commission said Tuesday. Riots, homicides, prison breaks and other incidents have increased from 52 for all of 2011 to 119 through mid-October of this year, commission President Raul Plascencia said in
releasing the report. The report, based on visits and interviews at 101 of Mexico’s most populated prisons, found that 65 of the facilities are run by inmates, not authorities. That’s an increase from the commission’s report last year, which said 60 of 100 prisons surveyed were run by inmates. “We’re finding a dynamic that we’ve been decrying for years now,” Plascencia said. “The government

puts much force into fighting organized crime, as it should. But it doesn’t take care of the places where they incarcerate the members of organized crime, who are corrupting and taking control.” Federal government security spokesman Eduardo Sanchez did not respond to several requests for comment. But Sanchez said in a September meeting with foreign journalists that prison breaks and prisoners controlling facilities have become a thing of the past since President Enrique Pena Nieto took office last Dec. 1. “A good part of the jails were controlled by inmates,” he said, referring to the previous administration of former President Felipe Calderon. “That no longer occurs.” The human rights commission said that not only do such problems continue, inmate deaths and injuries combined have increased this year, though escapes are down from 261 last year to 67 through mid-October. Plascencia said the prisons controlled by inmates are in Tamaulipas, Nuevo Leon, Sinaloa and Zacatecas, all states heavily affected by drug violence.

Skyviews ends series with ‘Chopped’ dinner By LIANA SOLIS Staff Writer
“Chopped,” a cooking show where chefs compete for a chance at $10,000, has been a popular television series on Food Network since 2009. Skyviews Restaurant wrapped up its semiannual dinner series with its own version of “Chopped,” Tuesday. Mike Nghiem, manager of Skyviews, started planning each dinner for the series last semester. Nghiem said there was a different theme for every week’s dinners. “Each week, there have been themes such as barbeque, beer pairings and other themes that either we or the students suggest,” Nghiem said. “Once the themes are set, we start preparing for each week.” Restaurant, hotel and institutional management students in the advanced food production management class make all the meals, decorations and conduct the overall planning for the dinner series. Nghiem said each senior participates in the dinner series as part of their final grade for the class. “They switch out positions each week so they all get a chance to work as a hostess, waiter, cook, manager and every position in the restaurant business,” Nghiem said.
“We give them the themes and they pretty much do everything else from there.” The restaurant asked Texas Tech students to vote on what ingredients they wanted to use for the “Chopped” dinner. Nghiem said they took the most popular foods submitted and incorporated them into each of the foods. “The ingredients that were chosen for the dinner were lobster, mascarpone, raspberries, starfruit, avocado, ancho and chocolate,” Nghiem said. “We made a sixcourse dinner menu based off those items.” Foods that were part of the dinner included chicken enmoladas, lobster ravioli and chocolate creme brulee. Frani Giovannetti, a senior restaurant, hotel and institutional management major from Lubbock, was in charge of making the starfruit and avocado salads for the dinner. Giovannetti said she was excited when she found out they would be wrapping up their dinner series with a “Chopped” dinner. “We’ve never done anything like this before, so we were really excited to do something like this,” Giovannetti said. “It was cool getting the guests’ input for the food and we just had a lot of fun preparing for it.” Switching positions each week
gave students not only experience, but also a look at what each position is like. Ashley Miller, a senior restaurant, hotel and institutional management from San Antonio, helped Giovannetti with the salad station. Miller said she likes managing the back positions of the kitchen more than she likes working the kitchen’s front positions. “When you’re in the back, you don’t have to deal with angry customers or any problems out front,” Miller said. “It’s just you and your food, and it gives you a better manager experience as well.” Community members who attended the event also were able to watch the “Chopped” television show while eating their meals. Skylar Lee, a senior restaurant, hotel and institutional management from Abilene, was one of the front managers for the event. Lee said the front managers mainly are in charge of putting the word out about the event. “We went around to different businesses and had to make a lot of phone calls to help advertise for the series,” Lee said. “We also made fliers, made a digital display for all the televisions on campus and basically did everything we had to in order to get as many people to the event as we could.” The students’ final grade for the class is based on the amount

of revenue they brought in when they were at the manager position. Lee said they arrived at Skyviews right after it stopped serving lunch to start preparing for the night. “We had to set up all the tables, decorate the whole place the way we wanted and get everything ready for when the guests arrive,” Lee said. “I’ve worked in bars and
restaurants my whole life, so I wasn’t nervous. Everything ran really smoothly, too, which we were satisfied with.” Skyviews has two more nights of its “Chopped” dinner, and reservations can still be made by phone call. Nghiem said 130 people already made reservations for tonight and that Thursday also is filling up fast.
“Working this series has given us a chance to experience the good and bad sides of running a restaurant,” Miller said. “You learn how to work with different kinds of people and you really learn your strengths and weaknesses. It’s stressful to deal with everything, but it has still been a fantastic experience.” ➤➤email@example.com
Thousands gather at Penn. battlefield to remember Gettysburg Address GETTYSBURG, Pa. (AP) — In solemnity, thousands of people gathered at a central Pennsylvania battlefield park Tuesday to honor a speech given 150 years ago that President Abraham Lincoln predicted would not be long remembered. The inspirational and famously short Gettysburg Address was praised for reinvigorating national ideals of freedom, liberty and justice amid a Civil War that had torn the country into pieces. “President Lincoln sought to heal a nation’s wounds by defining what a nation should be,” said Gov. Tom Corbett, calling Lincoln’s words superb, his faith deep and his genius profound. “Lincoln wrote his words on paper, but he also inscribed them in our hearts.” Echoing Lincoln, keynote speaker and Civil War historian James
McPherson said the president took the dais in November 1863 when it looked as though the nation “might indeed perish from the earth.” “The Battle of Gettysburg became the hinge of fate on which turned the destiny of that nation and its new birth of freedom,” McPherson said. In the July 1863 battle, considered the turning point of the war, Union forces fought back a Confederate invasion of Pennsylvania. Lincoln’s speech was delivered more than four months later, at the dedication of a national cemetery to bury the battle’s casualties. In the short oration, he spoke of how democracy itself rested upon “the proposition that all men are created equal,” a profound and politically risky statement for the time. Slavery and the doctrine of states’
rights would not hold in the “more perfect union” of Lincoln’s vision. “In 272 words, he put together what everyone was thinking, what everyone should know,” said park historian John Heiser. Because of varying transcriptions, scholars generally put the text at 268 to 272 words. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia administered the oath of allegiance to a group of 16 immigrants, telling them the national identity is unique, illustrated by the existence of the word “un-American” and by the people’s “fidelity to certain political principles.” President Barack Obama, in a 272-word handwritten essay released by the White House, connected the legacy of Lincoln’s address to gay rights, women’s rights and modern
Study: Kids are less fit than their parents were DALLAS (AP) — Today’s kids can’t keep up with their parents. An analysis of studies on millions of children around the world finds they don’t run as fast or as far as their parents did when they were young. On average, it takes children 90 seconds longer to run a mile than their counterparts did 30 years ago. Heartrelated fitness has declined 5 percent per decade since 1975 for children ages 9 to 17. The American Heart Association, whose conference featured the research on Tuesday, says it’s the first to show that children’s fitness has declined worldwide over the last three decades. “It makes sense. We have kids that are less active than before,” said Dr. Stephen Daniels, a University of Colorado pediatrician and spokesman for the heart association. Health experts recommend that children 6 and older get 60 minutes of moderately vigorous activity accumulated over a day. Only one-third of American kids do now. “Kids aren’t getting enough opportunities to build up that activity over the course of the day,” Daniels said. “Many schools, for economic reasons, don’t have any physical education at all. Some rely on recess” to provide exercise. Sam Kass, a White House chef and head of first lady Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move program, stressed the role of schools in a speech to the conference on Monday. “We are currently facing the most sedentary generation of children in our history,” Kass said. The new study was led by Grant Tomkinson, an exercise physiologist at the University of South Australia. Researchers analyzed 50 studies on
running fitness — a key measure of cardiovascular health and endurance — involving 25 million children ages 9 to 17 in 28 countries from 1964 to 2010. The studies measured how far children could run in 5 to 15 minutes and how quickly they ran a certain distance, ranging from half a mile to two miles. Today’s kids are about 15 percent less fit than their parents were, researchers concluded. “The changes are very similar for
boys and girls and also for various ages,” but differed by geographic region, Tomkinson said. The decline in fitness seems to be leveling off in Europe, Australia and New Zealand, and perhaps in the last few years in North America. However, it continues to fall in China, and Japan never had much falloff — fitness has remained fairly consistent there. About 20 million of the 25 million children in the studies were from Asia.
technological transformations. “Lincoln’s words give us confidence that whatever trials await us, this nation and the freedom we cherish can, and
shall, prevail,” he wrote. Greta Myer, 44, decided to make the six-hour trip from Akron, Ohio, with her husband and son after spending a week in Gettysburg
earlier in the year. “It’s something we’ve never done before,” Myer said. “It was a historical event that we wanted to be a part of.”

arrogance. Many liberal-minded politicians today make it their sole purpose in life to reshape the foundational ideas our country was built upon, such as the people’s religious freedoms and free market economics. Elementary-aged children no longer say the Pledge of Allegiance in school, and our president is doing everything he can to streamline the public’s health under the solitary authority of the federal government. We seem to encourage an “open-door” policy to any illegal immigrants who successfully sneak across the border by granting them amnesty as U.S. citizens, although American taxpayers are still paying for government programs that provide for these people. Once here, they refuse to assimilate to our (for now) national language or to the U.S. system of government. In ironic catch-22 fashion, if any politician makes remarks in relation to the growing number of new immigrants to our country, they almost are immediately
labeled an immoral racist. However, those immigrating to the U.S. seem to have no interest in becoming Americans. Rather, they only seem interested in receiving their taxpayer-funded government handouts, and most politicians are smart enough to realize that if they want to keep their jobs they had better just keep their mouths shut. Under current U.S. law, approximately 1.1 million new immigrants enter our country each year. The Congressional Budget Office predicts that granting amnesty to illegal immigrants living in the U.S. as well as the scheduled hikes in legal immigration would result in about 4.6 million new voters by 2014. Some argue there’s nothing wrong with letting these people into the country because most of them are simply trying to escape the oppressive government or
harsh living conditions they’re currently enduring. I would completely agree with these people, if only the negative implications of granting amnesty to so many non-English speaking and underemployed people at once wasn’t so clear. The U.S. Constitution is considered a living, breathing document, meaning it has the ability to adapt to changes in technology and cultural ideas so as to continue to provide for its citizens’ freedoms. What many politicians and proimmigration activists don’t seem to understand is the Constitution was never intended to be completely flipped on its back.

During the 1920s, the American Communist Party began using the phrase “American Exceptionalism” while describing how America was independent of the Marxist laws of history thanks to the country’s abundance of natural resources, capacity for industry and the absence of harsh class distinctions. Our country, when it still was referred to as the “New World,” was settled by immigrants from European and Scandinavian countries who were seeking vast riches, freedom from religious oppression or simply a new start on life. During that time the colonies became home to some of the greatest political thinkers mankind has ever seen. To quote Jeff Daniels’ character, Will McAvoy, from the HBO series “The Newsroom,” “We built great, big things, made ungodly technological advances, explored the universe, cured diseases and we cultivated the world’s greatest artists and the world’s greatest economy.” So, what’s happened to us? Nowadays it seems that many U.S. citizens confuse the idea of patriotism with nationalistic
by blood or territory. We are currently witnessing the slow, but eventual shift of power from 50 individual states to a singular state controlled by Washington. The influence and importance of elected representatives is moving toward federal bureaucrats, and the idea that the U.S. is a country occupied by free citizens is being replaced by one made up by a single government. Daniel Hannan of The Wall Street Journal put it perfectly when he said, “We sometimes talk of the English-speaking nations as having a culture of independence. But culture does not exist, numinously, alongside institutions; it is a product of institutions. People respond to incentives. Make enough people dependent on the state, and it won’t be long before Americans start behaving and voting like…well, like Greeks.” I’m sure we all remember the riots and eventual coup of the Greek government not too long ago as well as the residual effects caused by such poor decisions made by their former policy makers. Do we really want to end up like them? We can’t continue to advertise the U.S. as some sort of “Garden of Eden” to the rest of the world — one filled with an infinite amount of resources and absolutely no restrictions to population growth — because that is
not what America is. We’re struggling with a failing economy and yet continue to try and police the rest of the world, so it’s no wonder people in other countries see Americans as morally arrogant people. Our schools are overcrowded, and we pay our teachers a shockingly low salary, so of course, our level of education when compared to the rest of the world is so embarrassing. The federal government would rather punish success and hard work by taxing anyone who’s achieved a significant amount of wealth at a higher tax rate than those in lesser economic classes, just to provide handouts to individuals who don’t want to take the effort to find work. We’re on the road to creating a national culture of people so accustomed to receiving unemployment checks and food stamps that we no longer see the need to exert any effort to find work and contribute to the country’s gross domestic product. To quote the great Ron Swanson, “Give a man a fish and feed him for a day. Don’t teach a man to fish and feed yourself. He’s a grown man, and fishing’s not that hard.” Lane is a senior political science major from Wichita Falls.
Obama broken promise Source of social change is society, not government leads to public distrust By CORBIN BROWN
OklahOma daily (U. OklahOma)
It is not surprising that for the first time in the last two years President Barack Obama’s approval rating dropped below 40 percent this week, according to Gallup. Obama made a confident promise in 2009, but it turned out to be a lie. His promise was: “If you like your health care plan, you’ll be able to keep your health care plan, period. No one will take it away, no matter what.” Now, with the Affordable Care Act in effect, many people are losing their own health care plans because they don’t fit the mandated requirements of the Affordable Care Act. According to a White House official speaking for Obama, about half of the the 12 to 15 million people that by health insurance on the individual marketplace will be adversely affected by the Affordable Care Act. However, Obama claims those affected will be “better off,” and they don’t know it yet because the website is still down. For a bill that Obama fought for over the course of an entire term, plus a year into the next, these issues should not happen. It’s a lack of attention to detail that brings questions on how much Obama can be

The Employment Non-Discrimination Act presents quite the quandary to proponents of individual liberty. Do we pass legislation that bars businesses from discriminating against individuals based on their sexual orientation and gender identity, or do we allow businesses to establish hiring practices based on their moral and religious beliefs? I wholeheartedly oppose this type of discrimination but we must maintain freedom of association. On the other hand, a company that engages in discriminatory practices must be willing to face the almost inevitable boycotts and condemnations. The most effective method to end discrimination against homosexuals and transgender people is not throwing a federal law over the
business practices. A 2013 Williams Institute study found that as of January, 96 percent of the top 50 Fortune 500 companies have policies prohibiting discrimination based on sexual orientation. Forty-four of these 50 firms have barred discrimination based on gender identity. A more consumer-based approach would be more effective and durable. The need for public support would help ensure a sustained effort towards equality. Only when the public overwhelmingly supported pro-gay rights could supporters of equality finally relax. Radical social change and the passage of legislation meant to bolster this change seem to occur at varying times. The pro-racial equality laws of the late 1800s failed to stop segregation in the South. ENDA is more likely to aggravate opponents of gay rights and extend their efforts than convince them of
the erroneousness of their position. Supporters of ENDA should look at the Supreme Court’s pro-freedom of association ruling in Boy Scouts of America v. Dale and ask themselves, “Do we really want an entity as capricious as the federal government deciding whether gays receive equal treatment?” As we have seen with cases such as Roe v. Wade, governmental action is rarely effective in changing public opinion. In 1996, 56 percent of Americans considered themselves “pro-choice,” while 33 percent considered themselves “pro-life.” Today, those numbers are 45 percent and 48 percent, respectively. Despite its supporters’ good intentions, the act will do little to help the struggle for gay rights. A federal government granted the power to direct society can drive it in either direction. The source of social change must be society itself.
Americans need to find new Canada to escape politics By ALEX ROSENTHAL
The Oracle (U. SOUTh FlOrida)
For those dissatisfied with American politics, the joke used to be to head north to Canada. Nowadays however, local Canadian government is making President Barack Obama’s NSA scandal and launch of the federal health care website seem like a trivial problem as Canadians don’t know what to do with Toronto Mayor Rob Ford. For those who have been living under a rock and missed the past several months of media fodder coming from the north, the train wreck that has become Ford’s political career began in May when multiple media

trusted when it comes to his promises to fix the issue. In addition to the broken promise, the Obamacare website is still full of glitches and bugs, and according to CNN, it will continue to be nonoperational for a significant amount of time. Obama issued an apology on CNN saying that he’s “sorry” for the people suffering due to his “confidence” in his health care reform and that his administration will fix the issue. House Speaker John Boehner is creating a bipartisan bill that will fix the issue and he is interested if Obama will back it, according to CNN. Boehner has said if the president is sincerely sorry the very least he can do is support this bipartisan effort, otherwise his apology amounts to nothing. Obama’s health care reform will undoubtedly be the biggest representation of his two terms of presidency. Unfortunately for Obama, it is full of flaws that are undermining the seriousness of it and hurting his legacy. If this reform was so vital to his presidency, there’s no excuse for the overlooked mistakes. Many arguments previously made by Obama’s critics are proving true, and it seems the Affordable Care Act may never be as functional and beneficial as Obama originally promised.
whole issue and calling it a day. Consumers must take the lead in confronting those companies that choose to engage in discriminatory practices. A populace that will hold them accountable for their policies is better able to address this issue than individual lawsuits or a government bureaucracy. Once Americans are set in their objective, I very much doubt they will be as easily subdued as an unaccountable bureaucracy. Following the passage of ENDA, we should expect more frivolous lawsuits claiming sexuality and gender identity discrimination than cases alleging racial and sexual discrimination. None of these characteristics are entirely protean, but a sue-happy straight white male can more easily feign a different sexuality than he can another ethnicity. Don’t think companies haven’t taken notice of the American public’s desire for nondiscriminatory

outlets reported Ford smoking a crack pipe on video and making racist and homophobic remarks. As of Monday, Ford was stripped of any political power when the Toronto City Council voted to slash his budget and deprive him of any official duties, besides representing Toronto as a figurehead at official functions, until the end of his term. However, in light of all of Ford’s actions, the City Council should have impeached him completely considering the city will have to put up with him for another whole year, as his term doesn’t end until the end of 2014. Since May, numerous media outlets and individuals have reported a
long list of controversial actions from Ford, including but not limited to prejudiced remarks, public intoxication, suspected drinking and driving and suspected solicitation of prostitution in addition to what he may have allegedly done with a crack pipe. Though he said on his weekly radio show he is “not an alcoholic” and “not a drug addict,” a recent press conference shows him publicly denying claims a coworker said he “wanted to eat her p---y” and countering the accusation with “I’m happily married, and have more than enough to eat at home.” With such tact in public speaking, it is dumbfounding to imagine how he got elected to public office.

Normally, a press conference to apologize for his actions would easily be the first step in improving a public figure’s image after a controversy, but as “Saturday Night Live” joked at in this weekend’s opening skit, the Toronto mayor has not been very successful in speaking to the public. Instead, the only way for the city to redeem its reputation or improve its political environment is to impeach Ford and kick him out of office completely. If he won’t resign, the people of Toronto must solve the problem themselves.

Red Raiders use bye week to improve By EVERETT CORDER Staff Writer
After four straight losses in which the defense gave up an average of 297.25 rushing yards, the bye week could not have occurred at a better time for the Red Raiders. The Texas Tech defense has given up an increasing amount of rushing yards during each of the last four games, with the Baylor Bears gaining 340 yards against it. Sophomore defensive lineman Branden Jackson said he felt the defense played better than in past weeks,
but that Baylor made adjustments at halftime and Tech did not. “They’re (Baylor) the best at getting open in routes and keeping their quarterback off the ground,” Jackson said. “They have really good protection up front and they’re really, really good at play action. They’re everything you thought they were.” The Red Raiders’ 63-34 loss to the Bears was seen by 69,188 fans at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, where the Dallas Cowboys play on Sundays. Tech senior wide receiver Eric Ward shined under the lights in Arlington. During his final game at the stadium as
a Red Raider, he had eight catches for 72 yards with one touchdown. Ward said with so many more fans in the stadium, it made the adrenaline flow for the players and helped them become more pumped up. After winning its first seven games of the season, Tech now is trying to win its final game of the season to avoid a fifth straight loss. Jackson said after the game, coach Kliff Kingsbury’s message to the team was to not let the loss get them down. “Coach Kingsbury just harped on, ‘Never let your head down,’” Jackson said. “We know what we did wrong,
and we went against a great offense and a great defense, and we just can’t make those mistakes. He said to never let anyone make your head hang and keep your heads up and focus on the next one.” During the final quarter of Saturday’s game, with 7:30 left, sophomore quarterback Michael Brewer played in his second game all year. Brewer injured his back during fall camp and received minimal playing time against Kansas. Ward said after being on the field with Brewer, he thinks the quarterback is ready to play. “He’s one of the veteran guys, and
he’s got the most experience at quarterback,” Ward said. “He knows the offense, and he’s ready. I’m sure he’ll get playing time against Texas next week.” The Red Raiders have an extra week off to work and prepare before facing the Texas Longhorns on Thanksgiving Day. Ward said the team is trying to stay consistent this week and use the extra week to prepare for the Longhorns. “We’re just staying consistent with everything,” Ward said, “like fundamentals and technique and just staying sharp and stuff like that.” When the Red Raiders take the field against the Longhorns in Austin next
week, they will wear new uniforms. Under Armour and Tech Athletics recently released a second version of last year’s Lone Star Pride Uniforms. Jackson said he thinks the uniforms look really cool, and even though he’s not from Texas, it will feel really good to wear them. “New uniforms is just like getting new shoes as a kid,” Jackson said. “You just feel better. You feel clean, you feel smooth, and you just want to go showcase what you got on and show everybody that you deserve what you just got.” ➤➤firstname.lastname@example.org
Texas Tech volleyball eyes upset against Oklahoma Sooners By JEREMY KRAKOSKY Staff Writer
The Texas Tech volleyball team faces the Oklahoma Sooners at 6 p.m. today in the United Spirit Arena. This will be the 64th all-time matchup between the two teams. Tech looks to snap a 16-game losing streak against the Sooners. Coach Don Flora said he is confident about the upcoming matchup. “It’s a really good matchup for us,” he said. “We know a lot of what they do and I think we match up well against them. I like the way we have trained, we have really been getting after it. We are emotional ready to compete.” The previous game between the two teams was the season opener to Big 12 Conference play. The first three sets were decided by a total of 10 points and ended with a close 3-1 loss for the Lady Raiders. Sophomore outside hitter Jenna Allen said the team has improved
greatly since the last matchup against Oklahoma and is ready to compete. “We’ve improved a lot on serve, receive and defense,” Allen said. “We’ve been going all out and been working on all-out effort plays. We are going to get every ball up and it’s going to be a lot of rallies. We’re just going to play good volleyball.” The Big 12 opener against Oklahoma was Allen’s first game of the season, after being injured during the beginning of the season. She had a huge first game with a teamleading 21 kills and 15 digs. Allen said she is ready for the game and wants to earn a win against the Sooners. “I’m not a big fan of (Oklahoma),” she said jokingly. “I really want to beat them, they’re a good team. They’re definitely a team on the rise this year and doing better than I thought they would. So taking a win away from this game would really be awesome.” Flora said it was a huge addition having Allen against Oklahoma
and knows she will have an important role in the game tonight. “Having Jenna (Allen) here has been fantastic for us,” he said. “Having her emotional side and physical side has been fantastic. For her to be able to step in, after having her out for the preseason was tough, but when she came back and was able to play strong, she has given us a huge physical lift. I’m really proud of the effort she put in and has become a good sixth rotation outside.” The Lady Raiders enter the game with an overall record of 9-20 and 2-11 in the Big 12, while the Sooners have a 20-7 overall record and 8-5 in the Big 12. Sophomore setter Emily Ruetter proved she is one of the best setters in the Big 12 and is third in the conference with 1,018 total assists, according to the Big 12 website. Ruetter said she knows her team is capable of taking down Oklahoma. “We just competed with them and came out fast in that first Big
12 game,” she said. “We went for everything and were really trying. Everyone played really well and even though we couldn’t come out with a win, we were happy with how we competed. We know we can come in (tonight) and take sets from them, put everything together and hopefully come out with a win.” Oklahoma’s previous game was a dominant 3-0 victory against Baylor, while Tech lost in straight sets to No. 1 Texas in its previous matchup. Although the Red Raiders were not victorious, Flora said Tech’s confidence is high entering the match and a win will greatly increase it. “I think it will just solidify all the hard work we’ve been putting in,” he said. “These women have worked together and stuck together, they have been training hard. Some teams would give up and check out, but they have not. I’m really proud of that. Putting up a win against an NCAA (tournament) caliber team,
Baker Mayfield in contention for Burlsworth Trophy Texas Tech true freshman quarterback Baker Mayfield was named one of the 10 semifinalists for the Burlsworth Trophy, which is given to the best college football player who began his career as a walk-on. During his senior season at Lake Travis High School, Mayfield led his team to a 9-2 regular season record and a District 15-5A state championship. Mayfield completed 182 passes for 2,467 yards with 22 touchdowns and three interceptions during that season. Mayfield, the only freshman of the 10 semifinalists, is a walk-on studentathlete. Mayfield was named the starter for the Red Raiders’ opening game
this season against SMU after winning the quarterback battle with true freshman Davis Webb. MAYFIELD During that game, Mayfield completed 43 passes for 413 yards and four touchdowns. The performance earned him the Big 12 Conference Offensive Player of the Week award. Mayfield has started six games for the Red Raiders this year, including last week’s game against Baylor, and has completed 194 passes for 2,078 yards
and 12 touchdowns during that time, according to a news release. The award was named in honor of Brandon Burlsworth, who was a walk-on at Arkansas in 1994. Burlsworth was a three-year starter for the Razorbacks and was named an All-American in 1998, according to the release. Players considered for the award must have began their first season of participation with a Division I Football Bowl Subdivision program without financial aid of any kind from their university’s athletic department, according to the release.
